Del was a good friend, he'd stop by and loved to share stories. My granddaughter Emily picked the name " Snickers" for his dog. Del loved his friends, and they loved him. He will be missed.

So sorry to hear of Delmont’s passing. He was full of fun with a sense of humor to match. We went to GSA at the same time, always sharing a chuckle, joke, and getting into trouble with the teachers!

We were on Sidney Snow's wharf on the Bagaduce River ready for a swim, but you did not know how. You tied a rope around your waist and asked me to pull you up if you sank. Over the side, you popped up swimming, and laughing. I've always felt flattered that you had confidence in me. Adios Compadre
